    Phoronix: AMD Launches Ryzen 4000 APUs - But Only For Pre-Built PCs / OEMs

    AMD today officially revealed their Renoir-based Ryzen 4000 APUs. Unfortunately though for enthusiasts, at least for now these APUs are just available for pre-built systems and OEMs...

    In that case they can keep them, I'm planning on building using Rocket Lake anyway.

      Michael, there is an error in your article. The Renoir APUs have 8MB L3 cache, not 12MB.

        I am fine with OEM-only if some of them offer a motherboard with a soldered APU.

          I'm looking forward to see what 4900HS with OC'ed RAM in a mini-pc (with decent cooling) could do.

            It's only a couple of weeks apparently, and it's only useful if you want a small system or don't need discrete graphics, otherwise get the standard Ryzen CPUs.

            Why wait for Rocket Lake?

              Perhaps he likes CPU bugs? Once you get hooked up on that shit, it's hard to let go.

              Rollercoaster of emotions: New software release! is it going to be faster? Or slower? You can never tell!! Endless fun.

                Generally for AMD Renoir I recommend at least Linux 5.7
                Thanks Michael, as usual

                I believe kernel 5.8 is the one bringing in a lot of sutff for latest AMD?
                Thermal reportings, etc..I didn't knew 5.7 was already in a decent shape for Renoir.

                I am planning to buy a new laptop, I wanted to go with Ryzen 5 4600U( due to the base frequency being 2.3 Ghz, I believe )
                The problem.. I can't find a decent laptop with ethernet, and 2 SODIMM'S sockets for Ram

                So I am expecting a classical lenovo but with Renoir..
                But quietly sitting and waiting its arrival on the market..

                  Some people decide by emotions not by logic.

                    I use 5.7. Once 5.8 stable is out, yes, it's nice with AMD energy driver and such but it's not yet out as a stable release. Hence 5.7 recommendation. I am happy with 5.7 on my two Renoir laptops.
